Donald Trump accuses Scotland Yard of already having Parsons Green attacker ‘in their sights’

Donald Trump has suggested Scotland Yard had prior knowledge of the perpetrators responsible for the Parsons Green tube bombing.

The US President tweeted that the attack was the work of a “loser terrorist” as he also suggested it might be a good idea to “cut off the internet” to prevent further terror attacks.

However, his suggestion that those responsible “were in the sights of Scotland Yard” was slapped down by the Prime Minister. 

Mrs May said that such an accusation was not “helpful” and that the police and security services are working to ascertain the “full circumstances” surrounding the attack.

Mr Trump said he will call Theresa May “right now” after she criticised him over his “unhelpful” speculation.

Speaking after chairing a meeting of the Cobra emergency committee, Mrs May said: “I never think it is helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation.

“As I have just said the police and security services are working to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and to identify all those responsible.”

Scotland Yard is yet to have confirmed whether the attacker was on its radar, despite the US President’s assertions.

It is not the first time Mr Trump has weighed in on terror attacks in the UK.

He previously criticised Sadiq Khan over his handling of the London Bridge terror attack.

The explosion caused by a suspected “bucket bomb” on a London Underground train at Parsons Green is being treated as a terrorist attack by police.

No arrests have so far been made and a major manhunt is under way.

Witnesses reported seeing people “covered in blood” after a “flash and a bang” from the device that is not believed to have fully detonated, but sent a “fireball” through the packed District Line Tube in west London.

Pictures and video posted on social media showed a flaming bucket – which is said to have had wires coming from it – inside a Lidl carrier bag on the floor of a carriage.
